Electronic ICU nursing is an area of innovation and technological support for critical care staff, patients, and families. We utilize audio and visual capabilities in addition to trending real time analytic data, to provide a second layer of protection for patients in the critical care environment. Electronic ICU supports bedside ICU staff in caring for patients and increasing quality outcomes for those patients. This is a very interactive, integrated role, and collaboration with ICU staff is an integral part of the role. Responsibilities will heavily rely on clinical experience and knowledge as well as customer service skills in the delivery of remote intensive care services where monitoring systems are used to: • Monitor critically ill patients and clinical data. • Provide critical care and clinical expertise to bedside nurses behind a camera from a remote location. • Maximize technology in order to detect trends in patient data. • Identify instability and communicate with bedside ICU care providers and patients
